Great atmosphere on the deck by the river. Very quiet and serene which allows for friendly conversation. The food is great but expensive. I always have the halibut tacos and my friend had the poor boy! Both were delicious. The service is wonderful!

First time at Aurum and the 3 of us agreed it is one of the top restaurants in Steamboat! Food, service and atmosphere were all top notch. Among our faves were the duck wings, asparagus salad and truffle fries. All were amazing! We will return on our next trip to steamboat!

The outdoor riverside setting was absolutely perfect. Our waitress was terrific. One of the entrees - a steak - was overdone, but was corrected quickly and with a personal apology from the manager on duty. Nobody’s perfect - but the attention to our having a great experience helped the mistake fade into the beautiful Steamboat sunset.

This restaurant is worth visiting again and again. Thank you, Aurum Staff, for making a special family occasion a night to remember.

Aurum serves one of the best whiskey old fashioneds anywhere. Who can drink just one? The happy hour menu is fantastic—from Parmesan fries to Thai fried cauliflower to duck wings to short ribs to salmon sliders and the angus burger. Just order a bunch and share. The grassy area keeps the little ones occupied while the adults savor the old fashioneds and the food. The only downer is that our server was disengaged until it came time for check presentation when a tip could be offered when he came to life. The additional servers who brought our food however were genuine and friendly and more than made up for the inadequacies of our primary server.

Excellent food and service. The host was incredibly accommodating (we were being picky about sitting outside) and the food was delicious. Loved the cauliflower!

We were at Aurum to celebrate a birthday. The food was amazing; however, the service was just mediocre and that was only when you could get your waitress/waiter to stop by for a split second to see what you needed. For the price and how pretty the scenic view was, you would expect the service to be better.

My family had the very best meal and restaurant experience at Aurem. Our dinner was outstanding and made a very memorable impression. We booked ahead and asked for a table on the patio to celebrate my wife's birthday. Aurem delivered - they had a table ready for us on the patio, right next to the river. This was just wonderful! The service was excellent - Allison was very friendly and super helpful. The patio had a nice fire pit and furniture that we relaxed on between courses. My kids went to play in the lawn area right next to the patio. It was perfect summer ambience.

The food was outstanding. Everything was prepared with care and high quality. The filet mignon on the kids menu made my girls very happy - no boring chicken fingers for them. It was a good value as well.

This was the best dinner I've had at a restaurant in many years. It was perfection. Thank you to the team at Aurem!

Great happy hour but had a host w a bad attitude, a waitress-kylee- with rude comments and a don’t-care style, and hair in the food x2 and spicy- not-appropriate for kids appetizers. It’s ok at best. The host and Kaylee need attitude adjustments but the menu for happy hour was pleasant.

I had dinner here twice last week. We find that a salad and appetizer each is enough food for us. The only reason I did not give my rating 5 stars is that both salads I had were under-dressed. Virtually no dressing on either. The rest of the meals were very good.

Brussel sprouts were amazing. Pork chop was excellent. Halibut special was very disappointing - over cooked with a very bitter mustard seed topping, which quite frankly I think went bad. We were raving to the waitress about everything until the halibut arrived. When I complained she was at a loss for words and offered nothing to fix the meal. BTW- it wasn’t just my serving that was bad, my son’s had the same bitter taste. Everyone else had a great meal.

We walked out before our food arrived. Drinks were made way to sweet. Sent them back to be remade. Ordered duck wings as an appetizer. First bite was very good. Second bite the wings were ice cold. Sent them back. Waiter said he would buy a round of drinks. After hour and a half food still had not arrived. Asked for food to go. Still wasnt ready. Manager said they would pick up the bill. We left without any food. Very disappointed and wont be back.
